The Recycle Right Program is currently being piloted in three neighborhoods: Deer Park, Shawnee, and Southside. The goal of the program is to reduce recycling contamination and increase the quality of recycled materials so more new products can be made from them.

If you live within one of the pilot areas, here's what you can expect:

  1. You'll receive a letter explaining the program. 

  2. Our team will come through on your recycling collection day two or more times and leave a tag that indicates if you recycled right or if there are ways you can improve.

  3. Your recycling WILL be collected UNLESS there is too much contamination. A red "Oops" tag will show you what the problem was. 

  4. Results from the program will be posted here on this website.
